This embossed leather CDV (carte de visit) was made by Samuel Bowles & Co. Publishers SPRINGFIELD, MASS. and sold by J.W. Seccomb, Bookseller & Stationer, ROCKFORD, ILL. Its pages feature a mix of gild edged rectangular arched, oval and regular rectangular openings. 17 pages have penciled names which can of course be erased. The 25 pages holding 50 photos are very clean without tears. The white front & end papers have a Moire pattern. The gilded index is blank. The front cover page is also gilded. The elaborate clasps are intact and original. The gilded page edges are as new. A lovely early photo album in wonderful condition. Just one of many I am offering here. 6.25" x 5.25" x 2.25"
